São Paulo Architecture Guide

São Paulo Architecture Guide

There’s plenty to see on an architecture tour of São Paulo. Brazil’s largest city is renowned for its soaring skyscrapers, contemporary art galleries, and bold street art. Look out for these architecturally impressive landmarks as you explore the city.

Eiffel Building

Towering over the Praça da República at the heart of São Paulo’s República district, the Eiffel Building (Edifício Eiffel) is one of the city’s most notable high-rises. Known for its modern geometric facade, it’s one of several São Paulo buildings designed by acclaimed Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer.

Copan Building

Another one of Niemeyer’s designs is the Copan Building (Edifício Copa), a striking mix of classic and modern, that draws inspiration from the Copan Mayan Temple in Honduras. With over 5,000 residents, it’s also the largest residential building in Brazil. 

Unique Hotel

Designed by São Paulo native Ruy Ohtake, the Unique Hotel definitely lives up to its name. The spaceship-like building features a shimmering aqua facade, dozens of porthole windows, and an expansive rooftop sundeck complete with a giant swimming pool. 

São Paulo Museum of Art

The São Paulo Museum of Art (Museu de Arte de São Paulo, or MASP) is as renowned for its dramatic architecture—the work of prolific designer Lina Bo Bardi—as it is for its impressive collection of Brazilian and Latin American art. Located on Paulista Avenue in downtown São Paulo, the concrete and glass structure stands perched on a pair of bright red “legs.”

Tomie Ohtake Cultural Institute

Designed by its founder, prominent contemporary architect Ruy Ohtake, the Tomie Ohtake Institute (Instituto Tomie Ohtake) presents an eclectic roster of art exhibitions, housed in a distinctive building made of multicolored blocks.
